    Spanish Romance (Romanza o Jeux Interdits etc.)

    Hello everyone, I took two weeks of rest because the assiduous study of the preparation of the pieces for the last Concert had caused me inflammation in the tendons of the left thumb. Now everything seems to be back in place. This is my contribution to the Spanish music trip.
    My approach to the piece is inspired by M° J.Feeley, M°H.Sato and M°S.Rak

    • ivan paolo I'm happy you did recover from the inflammation and what a surprise this personal version, very good job! Did you intend to remove the background, everything is in place for a great production!

      I took a towel to experiment with DaVinci cromakey but I haven't figured it out yet, but I don't despair of succeeding.🖖

    De Falla Homenaje Update #2.5

    I just redid the Homenaje this morning and think this is much better, despite the several blunders and bloopers. The perspective is also much better. I am still having to focus on the technique which does get in the way of musical expression but that is ok for now. It will take me a long time to actually fully (?) refine this.

    Danza del Molinero. Manuel de Falla

    from ballet el sombrero de tres picos 1919.

    What is easy maybe memorizing if you concentrate. Put in some xtra beat s and bars here due to lack of concentration. You can then try to distract the watchers with some titles :-).

    What is difficult I feel I have improved a little in the difficult passages, but to do a consistent performance in one recording is difficult. This is the first take of 5 , I blow the start somewhat and then relax, for the next 4 I had a really good start but  a voice in me kept saying  don't blow anything in the remainder... don't blow anything in the remainder...

    This is my first experience with DAW  and da Vinci (even though it says recording course graduate above) and when you are not acquainted the setup stresses somewhat before you even reach to the guitar  but it is a learning experience and was one of my goals. I am gonna get this piece with time getting more confident working further with timbres color and vibrato

    I will be pretty busy at work the next week including weekend so this may be final for now.

    It has been a pleasure to hear all your contributions and remarking engagement

    Lars

      ivan paolo Dale Needles Jack Stewart Eric Phillips Emma Blaise Laflamme  Thank you for kind comments.

      Apologies for me not been very active on the media. I am just not really a social media user.

      Like incoming pictures of my grandchildren, comments make me happy, but it stresses me a little how to respond
